Vacancies - Detached Youth Workers

We are very excited to announce that with support from Children in Need we are expanding our youth provision to offer a new detached youth project - Scotswood Street Rangers.

We are looking to recruit an experienced Lead Detached Youth Worker to help us establish and deliver the project, and Sessional Detached Youth Workers to support delivery of the project as required. You will work alongside one of our existing youth work staff who knows many of our local families and young people.

The Lead Detached Youth Worker post will be contracted, 5 hours per week in Year 1, and if the project is successful, rising to 10 hours per week in Years 2 & 3, with some additional activities during school holidays. The successful applicant will initially work with the Youth Work Manager to consult, design, risk assess and develop policies that enable us deliver a detached youth work service for young people in Scotswood, which equips young people with the awareness, skills, confidence and knowledge they need to make safer and more informed lifestyle choices. The service will be delivered one night per week from Easter in Year 1, increasing to 2 nights per week in Years 2 & 3 - days and times to be decided. 

We are also recruiting additional Sessional Detached Youth Workers to support delivery of the project and additional holiday activities, this post is for flexible hours as required. Please indicate, on the application form, if you are applying for either or both of the posts.
